This book of “The Seafarers” series is a short, but thorough, well-researched and reasonably well written history of the Viking "Golden Age," (not so golden for the rest of Europe), from the late 700s through the 1300s.
The author does not hesitate to tell the truth about these violent, aggressive, brawling people, who were also traders and empire builders - in France, Russia, England, Ireland, and Iceland (Europe's, and perhaps the world's, first republic).
Master ship builders, restless of foot, they always seemed to want to know what was over the horizon or around the coast, leading to truly epic journeys.
An excellent book for high schoolers needing a book report or class project, and for anyone interested in history.
